If you have a freegle group in your area, it might be worth putting a wanted post for some pond plants. I often give away plants on our site and they go like hot cakes.

Got any fruit trees nearby? It looks like it could be a sucker from fruit tree root stock.

Talkback: Growing camellias

Your plant will grow and thrive if happy. Make sure you give it a feed after it has flowered - use food for camelias/rhododendrons/azaelas which is sold in all good GCs. The other thing I would say is don't let it go short of water in the autumn when it makes its buds for next year's flowers and you should have a lovely show next year.

As Dave has said depends which conifer and how much you are taking off. Some conifers will not regrow if you cut too far back. If you post a photo someone should be able to advise you better.

I put out ready made hedgehog food which looks like cat biscuits with the catchy title of ...'The Right Food For ...Hedgehogs'  which is very popular with my hedgehogs. Available from big branches of Tescos and Wilkos.

Climber for shady wall?

I can't see the leaves clearly but if you post another picture of the leaves, I'm sure we could identify it for you. It looks like an evergreen. I'm guessing but maybe a pyracantha...

Are you sure that is a climbing hydrangea opposite? Mine is only just coming into leaf and the foliage is much brighter than yours.
